Best cheesecakes around

I was amazed with the variety of cheesecakes they had to offer. There were so many choices ranging from white choc raspberry to apple pie. The taste of the cheesecake was fresh and homemade. It was delicious and I can't wait to go back in the near future. They also offer other desserts such as... read more

I took my wife here after a nice brunch at Lucky 32 and a visit to an art gallery. Parking was crowded but we were pleased to find spaces for customers located in a lot right next to the restaurant. The place is small when you first walk in but you are greeted by several varieties of cheesecakes along with... More

We stopped in last weekend for takeout Cheesecake after a fine dining experience in Downtown Greensboro...he had the cookies n cream and I had the Expresso cheesecakes...they were each fabulous. Prices were fair. Décor was unassuming...clean and fresh. The cheesecakes....well, let's just say that I've dreamed of another slice since we left Greensboro and can't wait to make it back... More

Unassuming in set up, this place offers great desserts and excellent coffee. Located in the heart of the downtown greensboro, this shop offers parking for its customers. The main shop is tiny, but the adjoining room is spacious plus there is an outside are.

We went out of our way to stop in for some cheesecake last week, even took a couple of pieces home for later. We've been here several times over the past couple of years and have never been disappointed. This cheesecake is amazing!

I heard about this place long before I eventually tried it. Since the first time, my wife and I have visited essentially every time we find ourselves downtown after a meal. Perfect dessert. I'm not the biggest cheesecake fan, but my wife raves about the different flavors available. They also serve local ice cream, cookies, cupcakes, muffins and several varieties... More

Any time we eat downtown, we always stop by Alex's for dessert. The selection is fantastic, and the quality unparalleled.

I stopped into Cheesecakes by Alex before heading to a concert on New Year's Eve. There was a bit of a line, but it moved very quickly. With 10 or so people ordering ahead of me, I still only had to wait 5-6 minutes to get my cheesecake. I was pleasantly surprised to find that most of their cheesecakes were... More

My wife and I wanted to give the nursing staff something to show our appreciation of the great care they gave her while she was in the hospital for kidney stone surgery. What better than a couple of "Build your own" cheesecake from Cheesecakes by Alex. We met Alex some years ago and had bought goodies from him before so... More
